Over Christmas, our family stayed for 5 nights at the Beach Republic Hotel in Koh Samui. This hotel is in an excellent beach front location a few minutes ride from Lamai. Since we were travelling with our grown children, we selected a 2-bedroom suite. The spacious apartment was nicely furnished with a kitchenette and a large balcony. The second bedroom was smaller and clearly designed for younger children -- there was no closet, no luggage rack, and no reading lamp. Oddly, both bathrooms had steps down of about an inch and a half, and since all the floors are white tile, presented a frequent tripping hazard. The hotel restaurant has a great breakfast buffet with a wide variety of dishes that change daily. The restaurant, pool and patio area are located along the beach a few minutes walk from the hotel building. This is a popular spot with many lounge chairs and sunbeds, a dee-jay, and a swim-up bar, and visitors come from other hotels to use the facilities (at a fee) during the day. We found we needed to reserve our sunbeds early. Possibly it was because of the holiday crowds, but the vibe at this hotel seemed better suited to partying than relaxing. We had only one complaint – the difficulty of getting towels in our room, which seemed a disconnect with everything else about this hotel.
